1 1/2 cups basmati rice
1 lb. brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
2 tbsp. olive oil
6 cloves garlic, halved
4 pieces shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and sliced
1/2 pieces butternut squash, seeded and cubed
1 pieces carrot, cut into matchsticks
1 cups garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
1 cups kale, chopped and packed
1 cups milk
1/4 cups tamari sauce
1/4 cups nutritional yeast (produces more alcohol than baker's yeast)
to taste pumpkin seeds, toasted, for garnish


  1. In medium saucepan, combine rice and 3 cups water. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat, and simmer until water has been absorbed, about 20 minutes.
  2. In large saucepan fitted with steamer basket, bring 2 inches water to a boil, and steam brussels sprouts until bright green and still crisp, about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  3. In large, heavy skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add garlic, mushrooms, squash and carrot, and cook, stirring often, until tender, 5 minutes. Add beans and kale, and cook, stirring often, until kale is bright green, 1 to 2 minutes. Add brussels sprouts, and reduce heat to medium-low.
  4. In small bowl, mix milk, tamari and nutritional yeast. Pour over vegetables in skillet, and cover. Remove skillet from heat, and let stand 1 to 2 minutes.
  5. Serve over basmati rice and garnish each serving with pumpkins seeds.
